That he was definitely the one.
Wrapped up in him,
She knew she was safe.
Held by his caring hands,
No harm could be done to her.
She knew she wanted him.
No one else was better for her.
The two of them,
Were meant to be together.
She knew it.
He knew it.
They both knew it ♥
TearsTears4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
The overwhelming tears in my eyes .
They're drowning me.
I can't stop them.
I look down, and the shirt I'm wearing, the pillow i'm sleeping on, the blankets i'm covering myself with, are soaked.
Soaked, with my own freaking tears.
And I cant help to think about my body shaking,
like my own... personal, earthquake.
The worst part, is that no one has noticed my tears. Not yet.
These tears, are like acid.
My eyes are starting to turn red.
And they're starting to burn like the fires of hell.
...That can't be good .
-Dear pillow, I'm sorry for all the tears. Dear heart, I'm sorry for all the damage.

I can't ignore this strong desire.
Watching and waiting moon after moon.
It was too late then and now its too soon.
There's a thousand million words I could say,
Non of which could show the emotions in play.
Cold Winters with snow filled days
To springs, warm, life giving rains.
To Summers ,green, sun drenched plains.
To Falls colors that wax and wane..
I'll wait for ever because...
I love you
Oh my god I love you.
The MiddleIs it a dream because I love you or a nightmare because letting you go will be the worst possible conclusion?The Middle4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Don't love too much,
or it's sure to end in dismay;
Even if you dream of such
I warn you it'll end this way.
Keep yourself a safe distance
from what you hold dear.
Love a little,
not too much,
I ensure you my dreams are clear.
I dream of that place
right in the middle
where nightmares flutter
But they don't quite touch,
no, not close enough
to leave me wanting to hide.
I dream of love that's close enough
to have a companion or two;
but not so close that when they are gone
I feel myself come unglued.
But this dream of mine,
this middle ground,
I have yet to find.
When I get close at all,
I always get too close
to leave it all behind.
You Have My HeartA gentle smile like a spark of lightYou Have My Heart4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Illuminates my soul
With every laugh and heartfelt glance
It is happiness that makes me whole
Your arms speak caring warmth
Your touch a cool caress
I am captivated by your eyes
As my heart beats within my chest
You bring a joy to me
One I've never felt before
With each touch of your hand
My care grows more and more
I miss you dearly
Whenever we may part
Although you seem to think otherwise
I know nothing will change my heart
I am not one to speak
About things I tend to feel
But the feelings that you give me
Are often quite surreal
The thoughts trapped about my head
I can no longer keep inside
But the words describing what i feel
I can never find
None will fit me correctly
And none can truly tell
The feelings that you give me
Or how forcefully I have fell
I know I can never repay you
For the happiness you bring
Or the pleasant smile you give me
With the soft melody you sing
There is no hole, no emptiness
Which you cannot yet fill
And if sadness star

A woman is made of warmth to her core
You have something I could die for
other than myself
I play it cool, but really...
I'd rest in peace here, now, just knowing I made you smile
I'm writing a song for you,
but there are too many words to remember
I'm afraid to go this far, as I'm sure you are
It's not something I can hold for long:
my breath under your warm flood
Tell me, show me what you might deny
It's better to regret, than to retract
We have nothing to hide
Well, if I've nothing to lose,
I have a few things to tell you...
In a desert, I'd give my last drop of water
just to wash your feet
Were my car to die tomorrow,
I'd walk the miles to your place
or any end of the earth where you might be
What you give me exceeds want, need, words, or reason
You laid my deathwish to rest,
but now death has no threat
because if nothing more happens before I go,
I'll know that you're real, that you're here
No matter what, even if you don't feel the same,
I'd give you everything
All I could ever a

I cant explain how I feel. I would say I love you, everything about you, but the words seem overused, their different than the feeling. Dont blame me for this. Its not my fault, youre- youre, well actually if I had to describe you in one word Id choose indescribable. All of you is beyond human comprehension; youre far more than a few mere vibrations from my throat. You remind me of a star, maybe youre from a far away star; thatd explain why whenever Im around you my palms get sweaty and how I heat up until my insides feel like theyre going to burst open and leave me scattered in pieces, I know it sounds gross, but the feeling of it is quite wonderful. Im stuck to you. I think its because of your eyes, theyre like some magical sticky glue. I just have to stare at them, into them, because even though you never say what you mean your eyes show confidence to what you speak. Its be

Broken LocksBroken Locks4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Why does my heart
when I see you?
When your fingers
accidentally brushed mine,
an electric shock
go through my body.
Every time you look at me,
every time you're close to me,
My whole body
Could it be?
That towards you,
I am in
How could it be?
I closed my heart
off to anyone
No one can break
those locks on my heart.
why is my heart
I want something,
What is that sound?
The grinding sound of metal
it's the sound
of those locks,
the ones that surround my heart.
They're being broken.
I think I fell for you.

We were never meant to be.
I am the lock and you're the non-fitting key.
I'm the ice cold snow and you're the palm tree.
Just not meant to be.
All the yelling and fighting,
It made me cry but I found it exciting.
The way we ended was unlike us, weak.
Dead silence with a final kiss on my cheek.
We were odd and we never worked out.
But that made me love you more throughout.
And even though you want us to be apart,
you will always have that special place in my heart.

So little time
Is what is always said
What do we do with our time?
What do we do instead?
We piddle, we play
All night and
On the computer is where we are
So much to search
So much to learn
So much to forget to do
No matter how much they yell or
We never get off
If we do, not for long,
For we, are slackers for life.
SmileSomething about him makes a smile appear on my face,Smile3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
A true smile, one that comes naturally and not forced out of fear
Not a fear to fit in but a fear of calling attention upon myself
I only want his attention and my heart will smile for eternity
Any pain will subside for that moment being even if it's only for a second,
A second which lasts a lifetime to me
A lifetime of wonder and hope as I gaze at him will a stupid smile on my face
Butterflies fill my stomach whenever I see his smile,
His beautiful smile
Fills my heart with joy
I miss that feeling more than anything I've ever felt
SeparationSeparationSeparation4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
When I first met you,
Amidst the crowd of people.
You were shrouded by mysteriousness,
And I was drawn like a moth to fire.
Nights became my favorite part of the day.
Because it was during the nighttime,
When the sky lit up with stars,
That the connection between me and you came to be.
I fell asleep the following nights,
With a smile on my lips,
Gently grasping onto the cellphone,
A link that drew us together.
Our encounter was fate.
It didn't have to be you.
Out of all the people that day,
I didn't need to be attracted to you.
You held my hand tenderly,
Hugging me tightly.
You whispered words of care,
Melting my heart by the second.
Distance was a thorn.
In the bed of roses that bloomed.
Loneliness a starved bug,
Slowly destroying the sweet garden.
You slowly let go of my hand,
Despite how hard I held on.
Your heart hardened by the minute,
Until I could no longer reach it.
Nighttime became a nightmare,
A dream I wanted to escape.
The starry sky that once illuminated my life
Writers BlockWhen you can't think of a poemWriters Block4 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Words, together as one
Poetic and wholesome
Writing isn't as fun
Putting words together
Can be harder than it seems
It could stick with someone forever
Or just fade away like unimportant dreams
Any topic, anything
Anything you'd want
Any emotions you've been carrying
Any thoughts you do or don't want to flaunt
It isn't always easy
No not at all
Writers block is evil and sleazy
It's just waiting to see you fall
Untitled.Why is it so wrong to love someone?Untitled.4 years ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
Why is it so hard to have someone?
Why is it so hard to open up
The heart that was closed for years?
I tried so hard to be able to love!
I tried so much to be good enough!
I tried so much to fulfill all expectations!
So why am I the one who cries?
For so many years, I hide my fears;
Afraid of being pushed down and hated!
For so many years, I faked my smiles;
Afraid of being mocked about tears!
For so many years, I was right,
About telling myself I was done!
So why now I feel the will
The will that was gone for years?
Why is it so wrong to love someone?
Why is it so hard to have someone?
Why is it so hard to open up
The heart that was closed for years?
Starlight SerenadeAlive in the atmosphereStarlight Serenade3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I can hear the clear whisper of the faint breeze
The soft touch of the wind
When I close my eyes, I can see everything
A starlight serenade of glowing stars and freezing space
Whishing upon a shooting satellite
I'll pray for the day when we can spend the night together
Unafraid to be displayed
Underneath the sky, as the bitter sweet clouds sing silent lullabies
If only once
I want you back
So I can point out to you the one star I gaze up at every night
How modest it flickers behind the backdrop of black
The only entity that I will hold as true
The single light I believe to be you

Cicada Songs and Cinder BedsCicada Songs and Cinder Beds3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
My heart is swollen by cicadas' songs;
A moment filled by agape persists
'It turns pearlescent, almost fantastical at the sight of moonrise'
I am uttering your famous words, beloved
How poetic of you, beloved-
Truly wondrous how you uncover hymns and find limericks even in my grief
It speaks of us in volumes
If only the now barren tears I shed at every slivering of moonbeam
Could shudder the ground they fell upon with their might-
As if clashes of shield and sword
I am quipped with no other battle gear
Maybe then I'd have your attention,
Perhaps then I could wake you, quaver you, and finally seize you out of the dulling mire
Let me unearth your sullen solid symphony
Croon for me and pluck on my heart strings once more

While the other guys
Left to buy some coffee
And cause some trouble
He stayed behind

Speak mysterious language
His smile is just to perfect
Cannot be compared to anything
